SW Ridge* TD-
[And now what? Impassable cornice/serac barring the summit of Mt Frances.
Even bigger than it looks..., 1 kb]1200m. Follow the ridge climbing towers 1,2 and 4 direct, and avoiding tower 3 on the left. 30m abseil needed to get down the gendarme. At the top of the rock section climb snow up to the 'weird' cornice/serac barring the way to the summit and avoid/climb it on the right side. The first summit is a foresummit, the real summit is half a mile E along the ridge.

* This newly updated climb is waiting to be checked by the crag moderator.
